(deceased); loving mother of Bernard (Ginny) and Denise Smudla (Gene); dear grandmother of David Smudla, Joey Palcisko, and Katie Zich (John); dearest great grandmother of Jordan Zich; devoted sister of Jean Kacic (Louis, deceased); dear aunt and supportive friend of many.
Gloria will be fondly remembered for her love for family and for her caring generosity. She had a strong faith in Jesus Christ and inspired her family to live as good Christians. Gloria was a trusted confidante, a supportive friend and a problem solver for many. She also was a member of the North Italian Club and had a career in banking. After retirement she traveled to every state in the US, throughout Europe, Australia, the Caribbeans and New Zealand. In her spare time, she enjoyed classical movies, puzzles and Sudoku. She was a superb hostess and when you stopped by her home, you knew you would be in for a big bowl of Moose Track ice cream and delicious pastries.
